Of course there's lots more songs for an alto voice out there but these are some of my personal favourites. I tried to keep the list as versatile as possible, from ballads to comedic songs, from classical to contemporary, and with numbers from more popular shows, to lesser known shows. 

If you're a mezzo or a soprano out there I'll definitely being doing a post about audition songs for these voice types in the future!
